You THINK you can’t make money with Facebook? Let’s take this outside.


Whoop whoop wham whoomph!  Let’s duke this out.  Are you hearing that you can’t earn moola with Facebook?  I’m calling bullshit.  That whole giddy up about Facebook being useless for advertising is exactly that.  Useless information.

Here’s the truth: 

Facebook does have the giddy up and go go for making money for YOU.   You’ll be as happy as a lark.  On the downside, there has been a bunch of flack about Facebook and its algorithms.


#Facebook algorithms can make you cray-cray

Oh boy. Eeeeeeek.


Ignore the haters.  They are funking up the room.  You are about to prove them wrong.  You’ll be ahead of the game.

I get it.  I get that keeping up with Facebook changes can make you feel like you are losing your mind.

Facebook feels hot and cold and it changes more than the weather.

I’m about to show you that you can shake your groove thing on Facebook.

You can, in fact, make money with Facebook.  If you do it right. 


Let’s not pussy foot around the issue anymore …

When people tell me that they can’t earn money with Facebook, I want to attack them with my pen.


#Facebook & Design The Life You Want To Live


I have three words for them : Get over it.


I know all of the Facebook shenanigans must make you feel a little bit bonkers.


Been there.  Done that.


Remember this:  Earning moola with Facebook is like a good shot of espresso.  It’ll help you run straight to the bank.


How do you do it?   You just have to start.


#Facebook : It's a beautiful thing.

It’s a beautiful thing !!


But first, the question that I want to slap on the table, smother in butter ….

… and offer up for the taking is this:

Do you know how to use Facebook for your business?


If not, you need to learn how.  Right now.  


Helloooo Facebook marketing.  Helloooooo Amy Porterfield.  Let’s get our learning on.

I’ve gotta tell you, I have loved Facebook and hated it, in equal parts.

Not gonna lie.

Would you think more of Facebook, if it earned some money bananas for your?  Hmmm.  Let’s think about that for just one second.  Okay, thought about it.  Time’s up.  YES.

But still.  That naggy little jerk in our head says …


Should I really be spending money in Facebook? For what?  Whaaaat?? Does it work? Is it bullshit?  Is it worth it?  Do I need to learn about Facebook algorithms?!!  Erhmergerd.  Shoot me.  Shoot me now. 


Just me?  Okay.

*awkward silence*   haha.



Do you want to get rid of your Facebook night sweats once and for all?

Gotcha covered.


Let me introduce you to Amy Porterfield.  She’s as sharp as a tack.  Rock me Amadeus.  She changed my Facebook world.  #JustSayin’

I actually met Amy in real life, once.  I could hardly speak.  Suddenly, English became my second language.   I was so excited to meet her, I almost popped my Spanx.  I’m such a dork.



You THINK you can't make money with Facebook? Let's take this outside. Read more here --> http://wp.me/p38cMm-3Zv


Amy Porterfield is one of the world’s most respected authorities on Facebook Marketing for small business.  She has 108,000 Facebook fans!


That kinda sorta makes me a bit jelly jealous.  Shhhhh.


She’s smart.  Smart as all get out.  You should pick up what she puts down. She drops seriously good Facebook knowledge bombs.   


Amy has been a fave of mine for about 2 years now.  I have watched countless webinars and learned a ton.  An absolute ton.  I repeat.  A ton.  I’ve become a Facebook smarty pants.

Her free webinars are that good.

Learn how to earn money with Facebook advertising http://wp.me/s38cMm-facebook



Here’s the deal. I watched Amy’s free webinar, the Facebook Marketing Plan and it taught me how to create my first ad.  It is soooo good.  You have got to watch it.  Keep your googley eyes peeled, keep your ears perked and your pencil pointy.. she doles out a lot of pointers.  Big time.


Guess what happened !?


I spent $25 with Facebook advertising and earned $447.


Guess what happened after that?!


You can bet your bottom dollar that I happy danced that one out.

Okay, it wasn’t a gazillion dollars, but I was proud as punch to earn any dollars from a platform that I once thought was a dud.


You THINK you can't make money with Facebook? Let's take this outside. Read more here --> http://wp.me/p38cMm-3Zv


How did I do it?

Before Amy Porterfield entered my life,  my Facebook ads earned me a whopping $0 dollars.  Yeah, I was Facebook smart like that.

*face palm*


Amy teaches the coolest, newest most useful tools on Facebook.  She teaches you how to market yourself and your business … for GASP… profits!!  Money can feel like a bit of a dirty word, until you start earning it.  Dollar signs for eyeballs suddenly becomes appealing.

Advertising on Facebook equals making MONEY $$.  High-five.


Ba-da-boom-bada-bing.  Ching. Ching.


I normally hate talking about money.   I hate talking numbers.  Go square root your Auntie.


The point is that all this money talk and Facebook shenanigans is what got me thinking…

If I were a business owner, company with physical presence or online entrepreneur,  I’d do one simple thing to make shit happen.


I’d go to hell or high water to make people talk about my brand.


Why?  Because when people talk about your brand, it can equate to profits… if you do it right.


That’s a fact.


You need to have a system in place to do it right.


You THINK you can't make money with Facebook? Let's take this outside. Read more here --> http://wp.me/p38cMm-3Zv


Listen here, GoGo Gadget, simultaneously patting your stomach and rubbing your head while goofing off on Facebook isn’t actually a big accomplishment.  It is not having a system in place.  It’s goofing off.

I’ve got your number.

It isn’t a big accomplishment to scroll through your news feed and find out what Aunt Ethel is up to.  Yawn.


Now, knowing how to market your brand or business on Facebook, THAT my friend, is an accomplishment.


It can earn you some bananas in your bank account.

Work smarter, not harder.

Lynne, You are just be best! Love your writing style!

Facebook frustrates the shit out of me, I keep pushing though. I’m gonna have to watch those few videos and see if I can better my game! 🙂


Lynne I think you are my spirit animal. I’m completely obsessed with your blog (your style, photography, fonts, errythang) If you have any juicy feedback for me I’ll be yours 4 lyfe.

Reply to  Dawn

Thanks so much for the reply Lynne- you’re a legend (fellow North American yay!) Oh and BTW you are welcome to come visit in Melbourne anytime for research and or coaching purposes. 😉 Surely it would be a tax write-off!

Thanks for the link to the tools- and FYI you had me at ‘blogging course’ I was hoping you would offer one!

In the meantime I’ll continue to stalk through your blog- concentrated with so much good stuff!! I discovered my newest biz crush through you too- Ash Ambirge. Her ebook is fantastic.

You won me at “throat punch”. You are hilarious.
Help me! Ever been too busy to watch a webinar in small business but you know you have to. An Aussie mum/widow in Hong Kong avoiding the spanking banking world if I can!
Love your advice.

You’re such a fun crazy girl that I’d love to “tip” a few back with. Would love some great tips on the old FB, it’s definitely a love-hate relationship.

I’ve been a fan of Amy’s for quite awhile now but honestly kind of forgotten about all the great info she shares. Going to watch the the videos ASAP.

Reply to  Lynne Knowlton

my favorite is the one that every photographer and their grandma uses – adding an apostrophe to make something plural….um. no.

Hi, I’ve been following your blog for a while now and I love it.
I will look in to the FB videos as they sound interesting.
Already have a ~FB page, so if you have time have a look and see what you think.

My dear, you do know gold 🙂 Clicked through your link, listened to the entire webinar, fell in love with Amy’s infectious enthusiasm and genuine nature, and went ahead and paid to sign up for the VIP course. How the heck you managed to get me from here to there — AND happy to spend all that money — is a teensy tiny miracle. The timing was great, as I’m in the midst of launching a start-up, and this seems to be very much aligned with both my goals and needs. So a great big thank you for the heads-up,… Read more »

That is super generous of you to take the time and share your suggestions for all of us. Mucho appreciated and I’m sooo excited you ordered a map bunting. I actually let out a little squeal. Thanks again!

Lynne I must confess, I stumbled across your Blog but man oh man have I been doing happy dances ever since! Love your style and content – keep it coming! Hubby and I took a leap this year and bought a beautiful piece of property, well actually it’s a Lodge & Cottages (Lifelong dream!! Oh yeah!!

Our temp site is up but you can check out more of us on Facebook. We are Hush Lodge & Cottages!!!

I’ve been thinking more and more about playing with facebook and with twitter too. Thanks for the webinar links 🙂 I’ll get to playing about online & see what happens.

Thanks for this info lynne. I will check out those free webinars for sure! I bought ads twice on facebook. Both times the results were fantastic. I doubled my LIKES and visits to my site went up as well as better book sales on Amazon.

Hello Lynne,

A friend of mine introduced me to your blog and I love it. I like the things you wrote about FB and will take time to watch the videos you posted.
Keep it up and if you have time check out me page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pure-RoK-Hand-Made-Natural-Soap/260203210712268?ref=hl

Take care.


Hi Lynne,
Thanks for the heads up on the Amy Porterfield FB training. Going to head right over and check out the videos. Always open for advice. Plus, I”m with you… love her! I’m sure I would have pee’d my pants if I had the opportunity to meet her. (Which I’m sure would make a Super impression.) Anyway, check out my FB page and fire away.

Intrigued! Definitely need to get on this bandwagon:


Any hints and tips (even brutal criticism) especially from a fellow licorice junky, are welcome!!!!

I have 377,000 facebook fans and have only paid for an ad or to boost a post twice. Both times it was worthless. I find it far more beneficial to create quality content that gets liked and shared. That’s how I have managed to build my following both on FB and my blog AND sell stuff in my etsy shop. My last plug on fb (unpaid, just a plain old post) resulted in 48 sales in my etsy shop. 48! I did one a month or so ago and got more than 100 sales. Sorry but I won’t pay facebook… Read more »

I never knew a page about eggs could be so popular!!! Amazing!!! hahaha I love it! 🙂

Alright Lynne I’m gonna give it to you straight. Facebook is a punk and changes their algorithms more often than my narcissistic cousin (in law 13 times removed) changes her profile pic (that’s a lot by the way.) But since I don’t want you to throat punch me, I’m going to watch these webinars so that I can grab Facebook by the junk and finally make it work for me. GET. TO. WORK. MAKING. ME. MONEY. FACEBOOK. If it actually works, I’ll be forever in your debt.

PS. you weren’t kidding, this font is amazeballs…

would love to hear your thoughts for our facebook page for the clinic…southampton pet hospital (make sure you get the Canadian one). Ellie has been working on it this summer, but she’s off at Queens, and I’ve been bugging her in between classes to do my facebook page, but maybe I should leave my kid alone and do it myself?! Shudder…..thank goodness I still have three other teenagers in the house 😉
